Updated for April 2023!
The annual Great Egg Hunt returns to Empire in Flames! During this seasonal event players will track down crates of eggs hidden across the galaxy and participate in a airspeeder race to collect eggs, which can be exchanged for unique prizes.
To start, talk with Kari right outside the starport in Pandath
Upon logging in at the start of the event, all players will receive a holocomm call advertising the event. After answering the call, head on over to Pandath on Tanaab and look for Kari – the Togruta near the farm stands just outside the starport. She’ll give a quick rundown of the event, as well as showcase the rewards list for what you can trade your eggs for. As in years past there is also a speeder race that will reward eggs upon your first completion. Don’t have an airspeeder? No problem! Speak with the Egg Hunt Airspeeder Race Coordinator to receive a V-4XD airspeeder to use in the race if you have not received one last year.
This year, egg containers will be scattered across all planets and you will find them in areas with starports or shuttleports. Be sure to look high, low, and everywhere in between for these crates could be anywhere and some may be easier, or much harder, to find than others. Don’t think that you’ll get off easy and be able to /target your way into finding them – it won’t work. You’ll have to spot them the old-fashioned way.
An example from a past year. Some may be easier to see…
…or much more difficult to spot
Once you do find an egg container, make sure you radial the container and select “Collect Egg” to collect it. You can also use the radial to keep track of how many eggs you have so far and don’t worry – they don’t take up space in your inventory. There is a total of 93 eggs to be found in these types of crates across the Outer Rim, and each character can only collect one egg per located container. Some starports or outposts may have more containers than others, as well.
A guaranteed way to earn 15 eggs is to participate in the airspeeder race, which is located near Pandath’s parking garage. This year, players that speak to the Race Coordinator droid will receive a deed for a V-4XD Ski Speeder, provided they did not claim one last year. After you get your new ride, speak to the Race Coordinator again, start the race, and take off for a scenic tour of Taanab.
Once you complete the race under 900 seconds, you will be awarded your 15 eggs and you can keep your speeder to use freely. Like other vehicles, your airspeeder can be called from your datapad but only while in the vicinity of a parking garage. Each character on your account is eligible to receive the schematic, so don’t forget to check out the race and get your fancy new speeder.
Be sure to take a look at the rewards vendor to see what prizes are available, and how many eggs you need to acquire them. Note that you cannot transfer eggs between other characters on your account or to other players, so spend wisely!
If the new list of rewards wasn’t enough, this year Halyn has reintroduced a contest during the Egg Hunt. The first player to complete the full Egg Hunt and receive all 113 eggs will receive a permanent, parked starfighter as a city decoration.
Wouldn’t your home city look rad with a starfighter parked nearby? Of course it would.
The winner will also be able to choose the type of starfighter that they would like to receive from the following:
Scurrg Bomber, Scyk, Naboo N1, Dunelizard, Kimogila, Kihraxz, Vaksai, Ixiyen, Rihkxyrk, Krayt, Mandalorian Fang Fighter, TIE Fighter, Tie Interceptor, TIE Bomber, TIE Aggressor, TIE Advanced v1, TIE Advanced x1, TIE Avenger, TIE Defender, TIE Oppressor, TIE Reaper, Z-95, BTL-AT Y-Wing, BTA-NR2 Y-wing, T-65 X-wing, T-70 X-wing, T-wing, V-wing, ARC-170, Belbullab-22, ETA-2 Actis, Delta-7b Aethersprite, Vulture Droid Fighter, HWK-290, G-1A Starfighter, Sheathipede Class Shuttle
Is there something you’re dying to have but you don’t see it on this list? You can make a request for a different ship that is EiF timeline appropriate and within reason, the EiF Staff will try to make it happen.
If you manage to find all 98 Egg Containers and win the 15 Eggs from the race, be sure to message Halyn directly for verification and pick out your reward!
Well, what are you waiting for? Get crackin’!
